Chattanooga Friends is presenting Dunked for its sixth consecutive year to benefit four local nonprofits. The event will be held on Friday at Miller Plaza from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Dunked involves recruiting well-known Chattanoogans to take the plunge for a good cause.
This year, Dunked benefits Siskin Children’s Institute, Northside Neighborhood House, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chattanooga and LaPaz Chattanooga.
Well-known Chattanoogans have volunteered to allow friends and foes alike to attempt to dunk them in support of local charities. Each Dunkee is raising funds for one of the four nonprofits at https://www.crowdrise.com/Dunked15.
